      Comments about Samsung ATIV Book 6 15.6" Multi-Touch Notebook Computer (Mineral Ash Black):

      Bought for myself because I never owned one before! Think I can still say though it was the best choice I could've made. I've had friends whose laptops or accessories went on them pretty quick. Usually within the year they were bought. Dells and Toshibas are the ones I remember for sure.Mine is used mostly for social sites, emails, online games, watching videos and surfing the web. I don't download much of anything. Love the color, size, the backlit keyboard and how the keys click. Also love the sturdy reliability of the entire thing. I have banged it around a few times and it is still in mint condition. Not a thing wrong with it. Not a scratch on the screen yet. I also have a young child who plays games and watches videos, and I can say she hasn't damaged it at all yet either. The speed of the internet keeps my impatience in check. I recommend it absolutely.

      Comments about Samsung ATIV Book 6 15.6" Multi-Touch Notebook Computer (Mineral Ash Black):

      The amount of RAM has been really nice with my workflow for using photoshop and lightroom. The screen makes the images look pretty clear. Not a huge fan of Windows 8. I would have liked the option of getting it with 7 and the mouse pad is too sensitive and really frustrates me, but I use an external mouse most of the time anyways. Over all this seems like a great computer for the price I paid.

          Comments about Samsung ATIV Book 6 15.6" Multi-Touch Notebook Computer (Mineral Ash Black):

          15 inch screen laptops used to be bulky, this one is not. Its light, small and nice. Unlike other laptops the battery is hidden deep inside the case, there is no way to remove it. "will it be a problem when I need to replace it" ... apprehension!

          NO CD drive - I'm not misssing it. In my previous laptop, I did not use the cd drive for a whole year, so I guess I did not need it.

          Many good things in this laptop, but the only and the most annnoying thing - the wifi connection keeps dropping. I don't know if this is a windows 8 problem or a Samsung ATIV problem, but this is a big turnoff. Other laptops are continuously working on the wifi connection, but this one just drops the connection. A real problem if you are downloading something or banking or shopping, you have to start all over again. You need to disconnect and reconnect to the wifi.

          I really enjoyed the new Windows 8 mouse with Mac-like gestures; alternately the touch screen is OK.
